The results of tests of payload oscillations, forced by linear control function which allows to minimize payload sway after acceleration phase and after overhead crane stopping are presented in this paper. The analysis of solution of this problem has been carried out. The algorithm of operation for real drive system which takes into account the possibilities of driving of an overhead crane is also presented. The impact of inaccuracies of measurement of the ropes length on minimizing a
